"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." -- J. R. R. Tolkien
The ignorance of this article astonishes me. She says that poverty is to blame for unbridled pollution. Poverty is a direct result of not only overpopulation, but greed. It is the affluent American, European, and Chinese people that overconsume and waste our precious natural resources refusing to share the "wealth" with less fortunate people in poor countries. They cut down the forests in their countries to provide services for those of us driving new cars and dining in fancy restaurants. Eating beef that was raised on that land for example. The bottom line is that I could go on and on about why we are in the state that we are in. We can blame until we are blue in the face. The fact is, the only way we are going to get things under control is to take a personal inventory of how each one of us is contributing to our current state of affairs. THAT MEANS YOU AND ME! Researchers have determined that this planet is at it's capacity for being able to sustain the current human population. That means that now, if each person has one child (two per couple) we can maintain life on this planet. Convincing people to have as many children as possible is not only foolish, but down right idiotic.
